With an impressive mix of brand new faces to Trivia Club, alongside two of Trivia Club's most reliably competitive teams, it was set to be a competitive night! Could we have a first time winner on the night, would Team Name gain their 21st Golden VHS, or could Last Place Team win their third Championship at Cardinal Rule, in four weeks?!

Team Name led the field after the first round, with the Trivia Classic top score! Four and a half points behind them were Last Place Team, with Boston Marriage in a strong third place, four and a half points behind them! For those wondering a "Boston Marriage" was a term used in the 19th century and early 20th century to refer to two single women living together, independent of men. So that's fun! In fourth place were the Real Housewives of Roncesvalles, with the Newbie Ninjas in fifth!

The crowd in attendance were left in quite a spot, as Countdown Takedown led to NO TEAMS gaining any points... a first for this new format of the Game Show Game! Survey Says would garner points for (most of) the field, however, as Last Place Team grabbed the TOP TEN, while Real Housewives, Boston Marriage, and the New Ninjas were also able to figure out some points, leaving Team Name without the point-tential! We were then brought to an exciting C-C-Combo Breakdown, that saw Boston Marriage fall first, and Team Name exit unceremoniously thanks to there sole blind spot in this particular subject! Last Place Team then dropped out, followed by the Real Housewives of Roncesvalles, leaving the Newbie Ninjas with TEN POINTS after they added an additional Seoul point onto their C-C-Combo!

Yes, scores had shifted and the landscape wasn't quite finished with changing, as Tri-Pardo saw Team Name gain five points, while the Newbie Ninjas gained fifteen, Last Place Team gain twenty, Real Housewives gain Twenty-Five points... while the Boston Marriage found themselves in first place heading into the Finale after a THIRTY-FIVE POINT third round! With the Boston Marriage now in first, it was Last Place Team in second, six and a half points behind, and the Real Housewives in third!

Though they were in third, the best chance the Real Housewives had would be if the teams at the top underwagered or were tripped up on the Finale question! The Real Housewives were the only team to go all in! The Boston Marriage went only five in, but it was a smart move that allowed them to finish third, as they got the Finale in correct... while Last Place Team went in by a little more then half, and as a result finished as runners-up, while just six points ahead...
